Delias of the Solomon Islands
Due to their remoteness, Solomon islands is hosting several very rare Delias species. Some species like Delias messalina are among the most beautiful Delias species too.
Bougainville island species, Natural History wise, have to be included here, as the species found there are related to those on the main Solomon Islands. However, politically, it is part of Papua New Guinea, and those species found there will be also found in the PNG page.
Further exploration of the lesser known islands should bring interesting results.
